Let's Plan Your Travel to Kenya
Because of its diversity, access and experiences offered, Kenya has always been a favourite for safari enthusiasts. With vast savannahs and dramatic mountains, it is obvious why the animators of Disney’s Lion King traveled to Kenya’s Great Rift Valley and Masai Mara National Park to get inspiration for the film’s landscape.
Located in the south, the most established park in Kenya is the Masai Mara. Game viewing here is like no other; Sightings of lion prides, elephant herds, leopard cubs and the wildebeest migration (between August and November) are just examples of what to expect to see on a morning game drive.
A Kenya safari is particularly attractive because of the activities it offers. The Laikipa Plateau in central Kenya offers camel and horse riding, quad biking and tubing on the Ewaso Nyiro River. In the Lewa Conservancy, travelers can visit rhino sanctuaries, dog-tracking units, and other wildlife conservation programmes.
The capital, Nairobi, is a hustling city which is usually the starting point, or end destination of a Kenya safari holiday. Although the city is predominantly a business hub, there are interesting visits to be made; For example, adopt a baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, or share a breakfast with giraffes at the famous Giraffe Hotel.
The Kenyan coast is also worth combining with your safari. An hour south of Mombasa lies Diani– arguably the country’s most beautiful beach. The coastline is formed of sparkling white sands, hugged by lush forests. For those looking for a more active stay, snorkeling, diving, and paddle boarding can be arranged. On the other hand, for those looking to sit back and enjoy the paradise coastline, do so with fresh seafood, delicious cocktails and wonderful service.

Where to visit in Kenya
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Kenya.
Masai Mara National Park
Located in southern Kenya, the Masai Mara is one of the most iconic safari parks in all of Africa. The endless plains and vast savannahs entice thousands of tourists every year, and rightly so! The Masai Mara has some of the best game viewing opportunities on the continent, with abundant elephant, buffalo, giraffe, and antelope. Big cat populations are thriving so lion prides, cheetahs and leopards are regularly sighted. During the months of July to November, the wildebeest herds can be seen inside the reserve and outer conservancies which is an incredible spectacle.
Amboseli National Park
Amboseli National Park is often referred to as the the ‘Land of the Giants’ because of its huge elephant populations. This park is also home to some of the largest tusker elephants left on the continent. Along with good elephant sightings, there is an abundance of giraffe, zebra, lion, leopard and over 600 species of bird. The park has an incredible backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania – in fact, this is one of the best viewpoints of Africa’s largest mountain. A safari here can be a stand-alone destination or in an itinerary combining the Masai Mara or Tsavo National Park.
The capital of Kenya, Nairobi, is where a safari itinerary will inevitably start or finish. That said, there is more to do than just check in and out of a hotel. The hustle-and-bustle can be intriguing to many travelers and some activities are not to be missed. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust operates the most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world, and is a must-do. Other places to visit include the Giraffe Center (where you can stay over night at the Giraffe Manor), and the Karen Blixen museum.
Samburu National Reserve
Located in the Kenyan Rift Valley, Samburu National Reserve is a park offering great safari experiences and opportunities to see rarer species. Samburu is famous for the Samburu Five which include rare northern specialist species – the Grevy Zebra, Somali Ostrich, Reticulated Giraffe, Gerenuk and the Beisa Oryx. Along with these rarer animals, travelers can expect to see elephant, lion, leopard, antelope, and sometimes wild dog. Samburu is a dry park with high temperatures so most of the game congregates around the Ewaso Nyiro River.
The Laikipia Plateau
The Laikipia Plateau is an an expansive area of conservancies, ranches and rolling farmlands in central Kenya. The three main airstrips are Lewa, Nanyuki and Loisaba, so the park can easily be combined in a flying itinerary. Although the wildlife is not prolific or dense, especially compared to the plains of the Masai Mara, the Laikipia Plateau is all about expansive space, unique experiences and remote game-viewing. It is a great destination for active travelers or families traveling with children as the camps and lodges offer activities like tubing on the river Ewaso Nyiro, quad biking, night drives, camel riding and more.
Kenya is fortunate to home some beautiful white-sand beaches and azure waters. Mombasa is the quintessential tropical port of the country, located on the eastern coastline. To the north and sound of Mombasa are stunning beaches – one of the most iconic is Diani Beach. With glistening sands hugged by lush forests, Diani Beach is somewhere for everyone – families, honeymooners and water-sports enthusiasts to name a few. It is very straight forward to combine a Kenya safari with the coast, involving a short flight from the bush airstrip to Mombasa. This is the perfect R&R after your exhilarating safari.

Things to do in Kenya
Wildebeest migration, Masai Mara
The Masai Mara is arguably the best wildlife destination in Kenya. The Masai Mara is home to an exceptional amount of resident wildlife, including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffalo, giraffe and many more. On top of that, if you visit the Masai Mara between the months of July and November, you will get to see the famous wildebeest migration – an annual pilgrimage of over 1.5 million wildebeest!
Visit the rhinos in Ol Pejeta
There are only two northern white rhinos left in the world! These are two female rhinos, named Najin and Fatu, who are protected and monitored 24 hours a day by dedicated rangers and caretakers in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. Because of the species’ vulnerability, visiting the rhinos is one of the most popular things to do in Kenya. We would highly recommend it.
Nairobi is the capital of Kenya and a bustling city with lots going on, and lots to do. Most Kenya itineraries start and finish in Nairobi so spending a few nights here to visit the highlights is a good option. These include visiting the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, the Karen Blixen Museum, and the Giraffe Manor. If you book in advance (at least 9 months in advance), you can spend a night at the Giraffe Manor.
Adventure in Laikipia
The Laikipia Plateau is located in central Kenya and is famous for its adventure activities offered. For families, it is a great destination to include in an itinerary as you can do tubing on the Ewaso Nyiro River, horse riding, camel riding, bush walks, quad bike safaris, mountain biking, helicopter rides, and fly camping. The accommodation varies from simple tented camps to luxury lodges around the plains.
